Description

INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Superstar comedian and Hollywood box office star Kevin Hart turns his immense talent to the written word by writing some words. Some of those words include: the, a, for, above, and even even. Put them together and you have the funniest, most heartfelt, and most inspirational memoir on survival, success, and the importance of believing in yourself since Old Yeller.

The question you’re probably asking yourself right now is: What does Kevin Hart have that a book also has?

According to the three people who have seen Kevin Hart and a book in the same room, the answer is clear:

A book is compact. Kevin Hart is compact.

A book has a spine that holds it together. Kevin Hart has a spine that holds him together.

A book has a beginning. Kevin Hart’s life uniquely qualifies him to write this book by also having a beginning.

It begins in North Philadelphia. He was born an accident, unwanted by his parents. His father was a drug addict who was in and out of jail. His brother was a crack dealer and petty thief. And his mother was overwhelmingly strict, beating him with belts, frying pans, and his own toys.

The odds, in short, were stacked against our young hero, just like the odds that are stacked against the release of a new book in this era of social media (where Hart has a following of over 100 million, by the way).

But Kevin Hart, like Ernest Hemingway, JK Rowling, and Chocolate Droppa before him, was able to defy the odds and turn it around. In his literary debut, he takes the reader on a journey through what his life was, what it is today, and how he’s overcome each challenge to become the man he is today.

And that man happens to be the biggest comedian in the world, with tours that sell out football stadiums and films that have collectively grossed over $3.5 billion.

He achieved this not just through hard work, determination, and talent: It was through his unique way of looking at the world. Because just like a book has chapters, Hart sees life as a collection of chapters that each person gets to write for himself or herself.

“Not only do you get to choose how you interpret each chapter, but your interpretation writes the next chapter,” he says. “So why not choose the interpretation that serves your life the best?”

    In his memoir, "I can't make this up" Kevin Hart takes the reader on a journey through this life growing up in Philadelphia, getting married, having children, exploding his career in comedy, and going through the mistakes that made him who he is. Sometimes I picture Kev going off with the writer just firing off one liners left and right and the writer's scrambling to write them all down.

    After reading this book, I have a greater respect for comedians in general and you Mr. Hart in particular. I've followed your career as best I could since Soul Plane and I bought the actual DVD and I didn't bootleg it. I would love to learn from you firsthand and I would really like to work for you even if you aren't in need for a Kanielius yet, I'm available

    This is really a good book. To read his struggles happen to him on multiple occasions yet he still rose to the occasion is very inspiring. A lot of funny parts as well. Didn't know Kevin was capable of motivating and sharing wisdom. Definitely worth a read
